Birds and other pests can cause serious problems for organisations within the utilities sector, which is why the services of deterrent experts such as Scaringbirds.com are so in demand. Birds are one of the most common causes of power system outages, which can cause huge disruption as well as financial losses and reputational damage.
The droppings of birds can also be highly corrosive to equipment and building materials, especially if it accumulates over time. Constant cleaning and maintenance to repair this damage can be extremely costly, and can even force systems to be temporarily taken offline.
Just as importantly, birds can also injure or even kill themselves when they choose to nest at a substation. If they make contact with electrified equipment, they will lose their lives as well as potentially causing a system outage. According to the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981, you could be liable for prosecution if birds are injured or killed on your business premises.
